With all the great M/M books out there, I can't understand why someone bothered to record this excruciatingly bad book. As far as the reader, and yes, he's a reader (and a bad one at that) not a narrator, if I see he's reading a book, I won't buy it.
Would probably try another audiobook by this author, would be really disappointed if it had the same narrator. That would make me reconsider the purchase.
The narrator made the characters sounded like whiny, pouty children and was occasionally so over the top, it was impossible for me to ever connect to the characters. The dialogue came off as utterly absurd, instead of potentially warm and fuzzy. I would have stopped listening very early on because of the narrator, but I wanted to try to give the actual book a chance. Just couldn't manage it since the story, for me, was so overshadowed by the unfortunate narration.
happily ever after
Story is sweet with mild conflict and a happy ending. Perfect for when I need an uplifting, uncomplicated story.
This is the part that follows the but... in my title. While many of his voices are OK, some are really off-putting. Most especially is Jeff's voice; Jeff is supposed to be a big, strong guy and narrator makes him sound like a silly twink. I really can't imagine Eli falling in love with this character image.
A heartwarming love story
Same review holds true for other stories in this series using this narrator.
Unbelievably bad. I kept hoping for a redeeming factor; however, it never came. Though rating required I fill in a minimum of one star, I am more inclined to give it none.
